The webinar will present guidance on field quality control samples, chain of custody preparation, bottle types, preservatives and holding times as well as packing and shipping instructions.

Patricia McIsaac has 33 years’ experience in the environmental testing industry, including positions in project management, quality assurance and account management. In her current position as Product Manager, Ms. McIsaac provides business and technical leadership on a variety of topics including dredged materials, sediments, emerging contaminants and the utility sector.
